I'm Covering Up my TV for Holiday Entertaining

When we entertain during the Christmas holidays,     I always like to shut the TV off and have some soft Christmas music playing softly in the background.

I not only turn the TV off,   I cover it up too!


There's a small shelf in the top of the  armoire that the TV sits in.         I know,   I know,    my daughter is always telling me that "no one'"  has a little TV in an armoire anymore!       But I still love my little TV and my armoire too!

Anyway,   back to my shelf.     
  I have done all the Christmas decorating I'm going to do,    and somehow this shelf got left out.         

Since Christmas is just a few days away,    I decided to create a Winter vignette in the shelf.

This decor should last me until  early March or so.......

I need to share how I covered my TV,    don't I?      The fabric is the same length as the opening and I added about half again as much for the width.      I have the fabric attached to a tension rod with clips that I found in the shower curtain isle at Walmart.      In the next photo you can see how I just slide the curtain down when we want to watch TV.

See,   easy peasy!

Merry Christmas! 


  1. I still have a tv in an armoire too. I paid a lot of money for it and I like it as a piece of furniture! I love your curtain idea. And actually, I like that yours is painted white. Mine is a dark walnut and I do like it, but I think I might just like the white better.

  2. Penny,
    Only you would decorate your TV armoire and use a cover to hide the TV and I say this as a compliment! Our Living room TV is always on ...even yesterday when i had a family party! We had it set to a station that plays Christmas music and then gives little tid bits about the music and the artist being played!!

  3. Penny, I love your armoire with the curtain. What a cleaver idea to hide the TV. I love your little shelf above the TV. I have two armoires. One is a computer armoire and the other can have a TV or clothing as it has a removable rod in the top. I think the never go out of style. I do love your idea of white furniture it opens up a room. You have so many great ideas. Ok, where's the I Love Lucky camper as it would be cute on top of the TV.
    Keep up the great work.

  4. So easy peasy?!? You are very inventive!!!!

  5. I love this idea! Screens are such a distraction and focal point, I think it's great to hide them more often. Thanks!

  6. My TV is in an armoire too! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
